On December 21, 2022, at approximately 1:45PM a 22-year-old Quincy male wanted to display the Holiday spirit when asked by a fellow commuter at the JFK MBTA station if he could borrow his phone to make a quick call. The victim cheerfully handed the suspect male his phone. The victim received his phone back and boarded a Red Line train. At this time the victim received a notification that a Cash app transaction was completed where 100.00 dollars was sent to an unknown person. The suspect who used his phone was no longer on scene. Victim then contacted TPD.
Suspect description: white male, approx. age 30-35, 5’09” with a medium build.
This incident is being investigated by Transit Police detectives.
